Introducing Chrome 34

Starting today, Chrome has officially updated to version 34. Chrome updates automatically but you can see changes in advance using our Beta or Canary versions. The update happens over a couple of days, so if you haven’t yet been updated, don’t worry, you will be soon. So, what’s in version 34?


Import supervised users onto new computers: It’s now easier to set up Chrome supervised users on multiple devices through our import option. When you import a supervised user, all their permissions will then be synced across devices. This improvement to supervised users is currently supported on Windows, Mac and Linux, and will be available on Chromebooks soon.  


Here’s how to do it:

  1. Click the Chrome menu on the browser toolbar and select Settings

  2. In the Users section, click Add new user

  3. Click Import an existing supervised user

  4. Select the user you’d like to import from the list

  5. Click Import supervised user


Google Translate

We’ve updated the Translate UI  to provide a better experience for translation (or to opt out from translating content), so let us know what you think.


Windows UI

In Chrome 32, we updated the UI for Windows users but heard feedback that certain functionality was dearly missed. We’ve made changes; in Chrome 34 you will see a return of the arrow buttons to scrollbars, the ability to once again auto-hide the app shelf in Windows 8 mode, and more consistency in UI design of text boxes. Thank you for your patience as we worked on these.

Hi Sarah,

Please tell me if there is a way to change Chrome default vertical scrolling speed in 34?

I'm really struggling with this problem and hope 34 has it resolved.

Using Lenovo Yoga 2 and Windows 8.1 with latest Chrome release and my two-finger scrolling speed in Chrome is extremely slow.

No matter the Windows settings or Synaptics driver settings (how many lines to scroll), Chrome has its own default vertical scrolling speed that is in no way changeable.

Please help me increase my scrolling speed somehow, IE flies in that aspect?

The New Tab Page isn't fixed.  When will the New Tab Page be fully functional again?  Thanks.

How about you revert back to the old New Tab? I miss the Recently closed tabs. :|

The Omnibox is no longer highlighted when I open Chrome version 34, I have to clear the Omnibox to start searching otherwise my search term is appended to the end of "chrome://apps/" and I receive the "This webpage is not available" error.

Canary is on version 36 and just for everyone's information, the stinking google search box and tiny page images shoved to the bottom are still there.

BOO HISS SARAH AND GOOGLE!!!!!! YOU PEOPLE DON'T LISTEN TO ANYTHING ANYONE SAYS ABOUT YOUR CRAPPY DECISIONS. 

RETURN CHROME NEW TAB PAGE TO THE WAY IT WAS IN CHROME 32. HOW MANY TIMES DO YOU HAVE TO BE TOLD???????

Quick - Windows Users - disable Chrome's automatic updates by going into the Control Panel/ Administrative Tools, and then services. You will find two things there to disable.

Have you fixed the intentionally-downgraded functionality of the New Tab Page?

We know that this is about branding, and about not showing non-Google apps right away when the user goes to the NTP. We get it. You want us to use Google properties. WE ALREADY DO. I now spend 100s of extra clicks and mouse movements a day because of your imbecilic decision to remove desired functionality from Chrome. Literally 100s of extra movements because of these changes.  

So now, after 33's update, we have to EVERY TIME WE WANT TO GO TO AN APP, have to click through 3-4 more actions just to get to my Chrome Apps... this is a waste of time, it's inefficient, and it is an UGLY, PAINFUL SOLUTION. 

If you really must force Google branding and only Google apps down our throats, at least give us the option to get to our Apps in one click. Shame on the Chrome team!
